You guys know it’s already been a good week for sales, but I had to pop in and tell you about another can’t-miss event starting this weekend: the Sephora Spring Bonus. If you sign up to be a Sephora Beauty Insider (it’s free!), you can get all of Sephora’s best makeup, skincare and makeup products starting at 10% off, April 20-23. If you’re already a VIB member, you can get 15% off all the same products April 20-23, and if you’re a Rouge Member, you get 15% off beauty finds starting this weekend!

If you’re like me and don’t buy new beauty products very often, or you feel like trying out new products is a little indulgent, this is definitely a sale you want to take advantage of. While my makeup routine is pretty easy and effortless, I do know what products I’ve tried, loved and have come to rely on. You can see my whole spring beauty routine in this Youtube video that I posted this week! Skincare is my jam, and I have a few products I swear by to keep my skin moisturized and looking bright (even when I’m seriously lacking on sleep). Here are all the essential products every girl should include in her Sephora haul: 

This lipstick is pretty much in my purse at all times. I love the subtle pink color and how it goes on super smooth. This moisturizing lip balm is a must-have for during the day (SPF 15), and I notice a huge difference when I do this lip treatment a couple of times a week. 

I always get so many questions about my hair, and this is the exact curling iron that I use! I’ll use this volume spray for a little extra oomph and I put invisible oil on the ends to make my curls extra shiny and tame down frizz. 

I hate the feeling of having a lot of heavy foundation on my face, so I tend to keep my base layer of makeup pretty lightweight. I’ll use this concealer for spot coverage, this invisible foundation, and this Bare Minerals SPF 15 pressed powder (I use this brush set to apply everything), and then I’ll top it all off with a brightening powder or a highlighter

I always tell everyone that this eye concentrate is worth every penny, and it’s one of my favorite parts of my nightly routine

I love the name of this Summer Fridays mask—it really is pure bliss in a bottle. I also recently tried the Drunk Elephant babyfacial after hearing other bloggers rave about it, and I’m obsessed. I noticed an instant ‘perkiness’ in my skin, if that makes sense. 

I’ve always been a blush gal—the NARS pressed powder blush and the wanted cheek palette are my go-tos. 

What items are you including in your own Sephora haul? If you aren’t already a Beauty Insider, you can sign up here, and if you’re already a VIB Rouge member, you can start shopping here. If you have any questions about my skincare or beauty routine, leave them in the comments! Have a great weekend!
